We are pleased to announce that at long last “no-fault divorce” is set to become reality after the Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill received Royal Assent last week.
Head of the Family Department Alyson Siddall says:
“This is very welcome news. Having been a family law specialist for nearly 35 years, I have seen how upsetting and inflammatory the present system is. It is the biggest change to the divorce laws that I have known during my years in practice.
Divorcing couples will no longer have to assign blame in order to be granted a divorce. This should make it easier for divorcing parties to resolve other issues such as finances and disputes over the children more easily”
